Matthew Van Eps of Dordt University is this week’s track athlete-of-the-week. Van Eps, a senior from Prinsburg, Minnesota, won the 800 in dramatic fashion at the Jim Dutcher Classic, coming from behind to post a 1:50.3 for the second fastest time in the NAIA. He then came back to anchor the 4x400 relay team to a 3:16.08 for the second fastest time in the NAIA this season. His 800 time met the automatic standard for NAIA National Championship and the 4x400 time met the provisional standard. His 800 time is a personal best.
